Everyone thought this pitch was strike three -- except for the umpire

When is a strikeout not really a strikeout? When the umpire decides it isn't.Take Greg Garcia's at-bat in the 15th inning of Friday night's game for example.Garcia was so sure that this 0-2 pitch was strike three that he actually turned to walk back to the St. Louis Cardinals' dugout.

The case for keeping Austin Barnes around when A.J. Ellis returns

A.J. Ellis is due back from the disabled list on Tuesday. Yay-J! That likely means the end Austin Barnes on the 25-man roster for the time being. But it shouldn’t be. Getting Ellis back will be nice, as he’s pretty much all you could want or expect out of a 34-year-old backup catcher (some more framing would be nice, but so would a lot of things). With Justin Turner out because...

Padres @ Dodgers May 24, 2015: Welcome, Austin Barnes

So it’s only May, and the bottom half of the Dodger lineup is Andre Ethier, Alex Guerrero, Enrique Hernandez, Austin Barnes, and Carlos Frias. I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say you wouldn’t have predicted that in March. I think it’s safer to say that you wouldn’t have predicted you wouldn’t be angered by that in March.

Let’s Get To Know Austin Barnes

Austin Barnes is one of the prospects that was acquired by the Dodgers in the Dee Gordon-for-Andrew Heaney-for-Howie Kendrick swap with the Marlins and Angels, and like the other players acquired by the Dodgers in the deal (Chris Hatcher, Enrique Hernandez), he’s a legitimate asset.

The Interesting Story Of Xorge Carillo

He’s often been slotted as a back-up, so he’s not a household name or a prospect who even registers on many New York Met fans’ radar screens.  Yet, the more you know about him, the more you might think the Mets might have something special in catcher, Xorge Carrillo.
